Learn about body snatching in the 18th and 19th centuries as presenters recreate the life of grave robbers and their body snatching at Historic Wynnewood!

Carol and Frank Jarboe aka “The Resurrectionists” will explain the tools, techniques, and risks of the body snatchers who provided cadavers for the medical community during the 18th and 19th century. This is an informative but fun presentation held at the huge Historic Wynnewood log cabin! The talk is included with a general admission tour of this incredible site, or a ticket for the presentation-only can be purchased separately. Bring lawn chairs and blankets for extra cozy seating and plan to learn all about 18th and 19th century body snatching!
